Empowered Living

I love to read the Bible but once in a while I have days that it does not happen. Yesterday, I was already outside heading to the car before I remembered I hadn’t read any Word of God that morning. Yes, we are busy but we can’t be that busy. So I marched back in to get my Bible so I could read even just a verse or two before heading out. I didn’t even take my shoes off (which is…

Meeting God in His Word

Meeting God in His Word

What is your favorite Bible translation and why? A couple of days ago I finished reading the Finnish translation and now I try to decide which translation I will do next. Any recommendations? I need to make a quick decision because I want to return to regular Bible reading as soon as possible. Because it anchors me in Jesus. It blesses me more than I know. So, let me know which Bible version you recommend. I can’t wait to return back…

Two Blessings for Every Believer (from just one Bible verse)

Two Blessings for Every Believer (from just one Bible verse)

I openly admit that I love reading the Bible, I believe it’s the living Word of God. People often tell me that they don’t have time to read the Bible. But I think anyone can commit to reading a verse (or two) every day. It won’t even take a minute to do it. Yet, it has an eternal impact on our lives. It reminds us what is important and what is not. Let me give you an example. Just reading today’s verse of…

Faith, Nicodemus and Narnia

Faith, Nicodemus and Narnia

I love bed time stories and the time spent as a family at the end of the day. Currently we are reading through the Narnia books by C.S. Lewis. I can’t really tell who is the most eager to get back into the story each night. I truly admire C.S. Lewis’ skill to write such an adventurous story. Most of all, I am in awe of his ability to weave complex faith-related concepts into the stories with such ease. After…

Remind Yourself of God’s Goodness

Remind Yourself of God’s Goodness

Many times I’ve shared how reading just a few Bible verses rekindles our faith and readies us for the challenges of the day. The verse of the day from Biblegateway packs a powerful punch for all of us today. In just a few verses we are reminded of God’s goodness and awesomeness. And how blessed we are to be his. What you say goes, God, and stays, as permanent as the heavens. Your truth never goes out of fashion; it’s…

Renewing Your Mind by Reading the Bible

Renewing Your Mind by Reading the Bible

How do you renew your mind? How are you becoming more Christ-like day in, day out? There’s no shortcuts here. We can only grow in faith by abiding in God. How do we do that? By practicing ancient Christian disciplines like prayer and reading the Bible. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God – what is good and acceptable and…

My Soul Sings Hallelujah

My Soul Sings Hallelujah

I’ve never understood that some Christians can live without reading the Word of God. Do you? How do they keep doubts away? How do they remind themselves of God’s goodness? I truly need to read the Word of God to be filled with the joy of salvation. Let me explain. Just read these three verses: You have been regenerated (born again), not from a mortal origin (seed, sperm), but from one that is immortal by the ever living and lasting…

Listen to God

Listen to God

It feels awful when you are not heard. It undermines your core being and it does not feel good. At all. But even though other people don’t value us or listen to us we have someone who always does. And that is Jesus. If he is our rock, no one can erode our foundation. Sometimes we complain that even God does not hear us. But he always does even when we feel that he doesn’t hear us. We are always…

Let the Bible Wow You

Let the Bible Wow You

Last week I read an online article about how we should not do things we love every day. Like if you love ice cream, you should not eat it every day if you don’t want it to become just an emotionless habit. But there’s one exception to this rule, I think. The rule does not apply to Bible-reading. Because ….the more we read the Bible, the more we desire to read it. The more we digest the Word of God,…

Cross Back into Life

Cross Back into Life

Are you discouraged? Lost? Homesick? Tired? Burned-out? Cross back into Life! God is waiting for you to cross back to Life, cross back home to him. Grab your Bible because “the Holy Scriptures are our letters from home” like Augustine put it. The Bible will be your map back to Life. With the words of Warren Wiersbe “The remedy for discouragement is the Word of God. When you feed your heart and mind with its truth, you regain your perspective…
